What did you do with your tax refund?

On Monday night we had some guys come over to look at the room we've been working on upstairs. It's a little bigger job than we expected and we decided we needed some professional help. They started working on Tuesday morning and they just told me they'd be painting tomorrow. Even though my house is in shambles, there is plastic taped down everywhere and Colin tracked mud (the kind they put on the walls) all through the house I can see in my mind what it will all look like when it's done. It will be so nice to have the boys all upstairs in their own rooms, to have a door we can close when Logan takes a nap, to have an organized closet in Colin and Trevor's room so they don't have to have too much furniture in there and to have everything looking like it was that way in the first place. So thank goodness for our tax refund this year....what did you do with yours?

Yeah! I can't wait to see more.

Unfortunately we haven't gotten ours yet but it will go towards the money we had to invest in order to get a refund and not have to pay more taxes. Our accountant had to work it out that way.

We were first time home buyers last year, so we got that $7,500 tax credit. So that was really nice:-) We used our tax return for a new lawn, and payed off our credit card. We also put some in savings.

I can't wait to see what your house looks like when it is done!!
